It has happened again on record, as a man has just been terribly duped. Read the story. Kindly note the featured image is not the said car.
The police in Cape Coast are looking for this Toyota Corolla with registration number BA-229-21.
The guy sold the vehicle to the complainant for GH35,000 and told him that the car papers were with his friend who works at the hospital. He handed over the key to this complainant and collected the said amount.
The seller allowed the complainant to drive the vehicle to the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital under the pretext of collecting the car papers and handing them to him to conclude the sale.
The complainant, after paying the GH35,000 as payment for the car, had GH5,000 cash. When they got to the hospital, the seller told the complainant to accompany him to see his friend and collect the car papers. They got to the hospital, and he asked the complainant to wait for him, so he fetched the car papers.
The guy waited for the seller for more than 30 minutes and decided to go back to where the car was. The car was gone! The guy has gone with the car and his money.
The man really cried yesterday at the police station.
The long and short of this is that the police are looking for the car and the seller. If you see an Ash Toyota Corolla with that registration number, alert the police.
offside: Do you think this could happen to anybody, or that the man didn’t really act smart?
In hurtful things to consider before starting a transport business, a teacher took loan to buy a car and was similarly duped almost the same way. The world is full of bad people just waiting for a chance to strike.
